So awhile back I wanted to get back into Honda's after a 6 or so year hiatus and after buying a 91 DB1 I was hooked again I searched for awhile and stumbled across a decent 92 VX Hatch on the verge of the death but enough to get it home. So I picked it up and its coming along slowly but surely.

This is my VX project budget build total investment of $1080. Comments are welcome budget build tips are appreciated and suggestions are considered I have a family so I don't have alot of money to dump into it at the moment Please keep that in mind.
